How will councils and districts continue to operate without fund raisers, recruiting events, income from summer camps/outdoor training events?
It appears that my council (GSLAC) is wanting to avoid insurance claims when they say “Leaders should avoid liability related to conducting unauthorized Scouting activities”
All outdoor scouting events have risks from snakes, scorpions, spiders, insects, and poison plants. We teach our scouts proper identification, avoidance, and treatments for encounters with these. COVID-19 is no different and we should learn to deal with it without hamstringing the Scout programs.
It would be better if GSLAC required a specific covid19 release of liability from all participants and provide training to ameliorate the risks.
Do our best and remove the suspensions and get on with Scouting.
